Some things never go out of style.
Yes, positions and the way we understand positions change from time to time, but football still requires, still expects, that most basic of arts: scoring goals.
The following slides showcase a handful of the form strikers in world football at the moment. And sorry, no Messi here. No “false 9s,” no wingers and no inside forwards are included.
The criteria: playing in the middle as the fulcrum of the attack, and scoring a bagful of goals. We’re looking for Ruud van Nistelrooys, not Maradonas.
